Our current Quote of the Month is taken from a September 24 lecture that John Esposito, director of the Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim Christian Underdstanding at Georgetown (that makes him the $20 million man), delivered to an audience at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne. An attendee recorded the lecture, and at 9:40 into it Esposito said:
You have myself and others who think roughly in the same school of thought. And you have a second school of thought represented by people like Bernard Lewis, Daniel Pipes, Steve Emerson, Martin Kramer, and legion. But of course we know that Christ cast out the legion of devils, but I won't go that way.
We thought such an artless remarked deserved an artistic commemoration. So, at our request, the cartoonist Stogie rendered what one might call "The Harrowing of John Esposito."
